The Christopher K. Jarvi Partnership Scholarship

*Please read Overview and Instructions prior to completing the application (application and supervisor statement can be found below)*


Purpose: The Christopher K. Jarvi Partnership Scholarship Program is dedicated to supporting the efforts of Parks and Recreation Professionals in finding new partners and creating new partnerships that will lead to continued professional growth and bring value to the Communities they serve.

Who is Eligible: Parks and Recreation Professionals that wish to establish additional partners/partnerships

Amount: $500-$5000

Selection: Awards twice a year; Number of scholarships/recipients will be determined by amount of money available

–  Applications will be accepted between June 1- July 31 of each year; Recipient(s) will be notified by September 1 of that year

– Applications will be accepted between November 1 – December 31 of each year; Recipient(s) will be notified by February 1 of the following year

Expectations of Applicants: The scholarship committee challenges applicants to think outside of the box when deciding on what conference or meeting they wish to attend. While state conferences are invaluable, the scholarship committee seeks to award scholarships to those individuals who wish to attend a conference that might not necessarily be within the field of parks and recreation, but could potentially lead to invaluable partnerships with individuals and agencies outside the parks and recreation professions (i.e. health care and insurance industries).

Expectations of Recipients: provide in writing a summary of the benefits gained from partnerships developed; minimal monetary match of award required
